Anybody else attending this date??

Also are there any other officers in the Lancashire area?? As it would be helpful to train together.

What are your Lecturrettes on?

The subject is "You" isnt it?

Cheers

*text deleted* it's "you" which isn't that specific so it gives us scope to cover anything weve done or are intrested in. Im still working on it now, *text deleted* talk about a life experience or something I believe in, I doubt they will mind as long as its intresting and not too boring to listen too. Hows everyones training going?

I did a POC on the 8th of December, so feel free to PM me any questions you have about any aspect of the course.

Here is a BIG hint: On tuesday eat the *hot* pasta lunch and drink a *hot* drink. I know it sounds obvious but we only got 20 minutes for lunch so I opted to scoff my own food (a load of sandwiches, jaffa cakes, wraps etc). In winter you NEED the hot food and drink to keep you going, and I found my body physically shutting down with the cold. You will be doing most of the endurance course soaking wet and caked in mud, so when that wind starts blowing it will sap the warmth from your body and your legs will seize up.

December POC was bad enough, or in the words of colours, 'a bit cheeky', so I can only imagine the fun you'll have in Jan!

Good advice there from Greenlees - can't stress enough how beneficial it is to cram as much food into yourself as you can from Saturday - Tuesday. As I was told at numerous points, 'even if you throw it up, you'll keep some of it down'.

Good luck fellas!

just dig out, if your still moving your *text deleted* keep warm and you will almost certainly get cramp on the endurance course (unless your some kind of ninja), stretch it out and then carry on running. ive run that course with full weight and weapon within 70 minutes and it werent as hard as when i did it on poc!
oh and win every competitive task on the bottom field, thus you get less corrective punishment, preserving that vital energy.
